Melrose Jam

DECEMBER TUNE OF THE MONTH – Please download and bring both tunes 🙂

The first tune, “Shalom Chaverim” is a sweet round played with your CAPO on 1 – I’ve been singing this since being in the Penncrest High School Chorus decades ago!

The second tune, “The Snow lay on the Ground,” is from Tull Glazener‘s free tune of the month page.  There is a melody part and a bass part – both can be played on a standard dulcimer.  Bring one or both!  The bass part is a single line on the bass string and the melody is in chords.
